CV Products —  April 19, 2013 | Category: Trackside Program | Comment

That’s right. It’s going to be another very busy race weekend for the CV Products on-the-road crews with participation planned in seven events occurring in six states. We’ll be selling racing equipment and apparel at a bunch of these events, including a pair of races at the Kansas Speedway on Saturday and Sunday. For those on the Left Coast, there’s the Le Mans Series in Long Beach, California, where racers take over the city’s streets in a long-standing competition.

So check out the races below and see if you can pencil one or two for this mid-April weekend. Here’s where we’ll be:

This — the fourth race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule — was won last year by James Buescher who passed Brad Keselowski for the lead with 11 laps remaining and then held it for his first victory in his 76th truck start. He won three more races during the 2012 season to capture the series championship. In the dozen years this race has taken place in Kansas City, there has been a different winner each year.
